The market sectors that Mike has previously been involved with includes alcohol spirits, confectionery, cosmetics and fragrances, together with tobacco products.

Following his retirement in 2010, Mike established MR Business Services, a consultancy providing strategic advice and market information to packaging companies in the UK, Germany and Spain.

More recently his experience and contacts have been brought into major use in the area of tobacco packaging regulation. He has been appointed as spokesperson for a number of packaging companies, namely; Weidenhammer Packaging Group, Payne, Parkside Flexibles Group, Chesapeake and the API Group.

The current trend for regulation across consumer markets is set to increase, with alcohol, snack foods and other certain food stuffs being obvious targets. The Consumer Packaging Manufacturers Alliance Limited will represent these interests where regulations appear to be ill-conceived and unreasonable.
